Cheers, jeers for Artur Davis' party switch
The political conversion of Artur Davis made national headlines as the former Democratic congressman from Birmingham announced his decision to become a Republican in Virginia. The GOP welcomed Davis, once a top surrogate to President Barack Obama. "The fact that he has the courage to analyze the problems with the current administration on the issues of unifying diverse interests in America and creating jobs tells me this is a guy with a lot of principle," Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell, a Republican, told the Washington Post. In Alabama, where Davis suffered a painful loss in his 2010 bid for governor, leading Democrats had a different view. George Talbot, al.com

After Supreme Court denial, what's next for former Gov. Don Siegelman?
WASHINGTON -- Whether former Gov. Don Siegelman returns to prison is now up to a federal judge in Montgomery, since the U.S. Supreme Court declined this morning to hear his appeal. Siegelman was originally convicted on seven counts of honest services fraud, federal funds bribery, conspiracy and obstruction of justice. He was sentenced to 88 months in prison and served nine months before being released while his appeal was pending. But since then, two of the charges were thrown out and the re-sentencing was delayed while Siegelman took his case to Washington. "We are very disappointed by the Supreme Court's decision not to hear the case," said Siegelman's attorney Sam Heldman. Mary Orndorff -- Washington Bureau

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
